    Default Bigboss source blank

    I upgraded my iPad 2 to 5.01 and jailbroke. Now cydia is not showing any paclages from Bigboss repo. It is in my source list but when I go to it it is blank. http://apt.thebigboss.org/repofiles/cydia is what it says but nothing is in there.

    Had the same problem...

    In Cydia... on the main screen at the bottom, hit Manage, then tap Sources.... edit... delete BigBoss. Then go back to the main Cydia screen, tap "more package sources"... and at the top, you should see it listed as a default and be able to tap that to add it back, and it should fetch the contents of BigBoss for you.

    Had the same issue. Went to look for "VoiceUtils" and discovered none of the BigBoss stuff was there. This method (above) resolves it perfectly.

    Server is just getting hammered right now because of the new jailbreakers... Just reload cydia for an easier fix...

    I'm stuck & confused & a real Apple noob. I've been getting CANNOT LOCATE PACKAGE for hours and hours on everything within Cydia. Should I just try again tomorrow, is this just cydia being busy? I tried to delete the Big Boss Icon Set, but that message about if I do it I would lose access to cydia worries me. And being sure Cydia is closed down and restarting it -- or respringing it? I'm very confused.
